The Manly Warringah Cycling Club hosted another mountain bike event on Wednesday the 11th of March as part of the Subaru Summer Short Track Series. Inside Terrey Hills, the Manly-Warringah Mustangs (a BMX club) was the location of the event.

This BMX hotspot is regularly populated with kids and adults, thrashing it around the track for big air, speed and fun in general.
The day was set for an unusual event but one that seems to be favoured by the club over that of fore-cross or standard BMX.
The Subaru Summer Short Track race was held for its second race, and is said to be back by popular demand for the club.
Competitors start outside the actual BMX course and a maze of tape guide the riders around a completely unorthodox route of the track, going between the graded track and grass and therefore making it a lot more tolling on ones stamina.
It is a competitive event, and all members of the club were taking the day seriously, but it does appear a great event to get amongst if you live in the local area.
The Manly-Warringah club goes down to under 13 competitors and is an inclusive and friendly club of all ages and abilities.
Racing and warm-up does not commence until after five in the afternoon and brings an end to a busy working/school day with some competition, exercise and socialisation.
